Hello and Welcome
I am Dianna Lee Graves founder of the
Self Discovery Sisterhood.
Throughout my life I have been dedicated to helping women learn why they think, feel, and act the way they do.
Then provide them with strategies and opportunities to practice new ways of being. Support and feedback so they can confidently become their authentic self, find their voice, and create the relationships they desire.
l created this on-line learning community for women who want or need to connect virtually.
Here in the Sisterhood Community you will find workshops, courses, group coaching, and circles filled with learning opportunities for self-awareness, self-connection, and those crucial "AHA" moments needed for self-discovery and healing.
We learn together.
We practice together.
We succeed together.
My vision of the Self Discovery Sisterhood is a place for women to feel safe and supported while they re-gain their balance as they find their way back on track on their healing journey.
This community is a 'soft place to land' and be seen, heard, and held when life is not going the expected way and go-to strategies aren't working.
When the yoga, journaling, meditating, and movement isn't keeping them in balance the way it used to.
When the unsettled feelings and unhappiness is creeping into all life areas and they are silently struggling to figure out why.
My mission is providing learning opportunities that are grounded in science and energy psychology while focused and presented in a holistic perspective of Mind, Body, & Spirit.
Mind + Body + Spirit = You
If you are like me, you have experienced your share of life's ups and downs. You have read a pile of self-help books, taken workshops, courses, been to talk therapy, and watched Oprah to help you make sense of why you aren't as happy as you think everyone else is.
Maybe by now you realize they aren't that happy either. and just pretend to be on social media (which most of us do) but you know deep inside you have the ability to have a happier life if you can get through this stuck place you are in.
And perhaps like me you know your past has some unresolved issues that are likely a part of why you are unhappy with yourself and your life.
You want to work through it but it's now obvious you can't do it on your own - because if you could, you would have done it by now.
At age 23 (I am now 56) I began my healing journey. My education, experience and training has led me to know that we all carry our unresolved emotions and memories from past wounding in an invisible pack on our back.
We don't even realize we carry this backpack because it has become a part of who we are. We don't pay attention to it because it's out of sight and away from our conscious awareness.
But the contents in our pack influence our beliefs, thoughts, choices, and actions.
"Wherever we go, there we are".
We take with us the memories, stories, and life situations that have formed our personalities and way of being in the world. All the content in our pack affects the relationship we have with ourselves and others.
As we age and increase our life experiences we habitually "stuff" anything that hurts us in there. Out of sight and mind.
But this makes the pack larger and at some point it becomes too emotionally heavy for us to carry. We don't realize how heavy it is and how much it weighs us down.
Sometimes we acknowledge it as "emotional baggage" and laugh it off.
However, despite our best efforts, our subconscious self-limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging behaviours begin to spill out.
All the sadness, frustration, and anger.
All the shame, blame, guilt.
How heavy is your backpack and what do you think is inside?
Our backpack influences our beliefs and the way we think, feel, and act. It impacts our perception and judgement we have of ourselves and the people we choose to surround ourselves with.
It is responsible for how happy or unhappy we feel with ourselves, and how satisfied or unsatisfied we are with our life and relationships.
It subconsciously guides and shapes our lives as it influences each emotion, thought and decision.
Our outer life is a reflection of our inner life.
The journey of discovering what is in your backpack is easier when:
you know you are not alone in your struggles (we have all silently struggled to cope)
you are in the company of women who also want to learn why their life is the way it is and how to make it better
you are guided through activities, topics, and conversations that connect you to yourself
Here at the Self Discovery Sisterhood you will:
learn how your life event(s) are keeping you stuck and affecting you holistically (mind, body & soul)
find the answers to the questions you seek about yourself
discover within you the power to change your life and get off the hamster wheel
create a personalized kit of coping strategies and life balance practices using proven Eastern & Western techniques grounded in psychology, brain-based science, and tradition
have access to guidance, support, and education from a somatic therapist, self-empowerment teacher, and group life coach
empty your backpack of past narratives, stories, and books that weigh you down.
This unique community is for women ready to commit their time and energy resources on being the best versions of themselves.
Women who have started on, or want to begin a self awareness journey.
Women who desire to walk beside kindred sisters also seeking authentic connection, friendship, and genuine support.
Women who are ready to become empowered and create the life they desire and the relationships they deserve.
Is this you ?
Can you relate?
I want to accept myself the way I am and be happy with my life
but I don't know how
(and nothing I have tried thus far such as self-help books, meditation, yoga, or talk therapy has created the long term change I want).
I want to be in relationships that feels good
(but I am not and I can't understand why, or what I am doing wrong).
I feel stuck in my life
(and I am losing both motivation and hope that it will ever change).
There must be something more to life
(because everyone else seems happier than I am so I must be doing
I feel so alone
(and don't have anyone that really understands what I am going through -
I wish I could talk to someone and not feel judged).
What I really want instead is:
to feel whole and balanced
(in my mind, body, spirit)
be emotionally secure
(and understand how to shift myself when I am not)
have the resources and ability to get unstuck
(when I choose to)
to feel authentic when I use my voice
(and intrinsically know the importance and value of my contribution)
to know I am empowered to make the life changes I want
(whenever I am ready to)
to surround myself with likeminded women
(who are always there to support me, just as I am there to support them)
"I have been looking for a community like this for a long time because
I love learning about myself.
This community is more genuine than facebook and I like that the women here are all working on different parts of their lives, but in the end our goals are the same and we want to self discover.
I'm surprised how easy it has been for me to post freely and how I have come out
of my comfort zone.
The app is easy to use and if I am having a downer day being here helps me feel better".

We are your soft place to land, and your biggest cheerleaders.
Being surrounded by a feminine community is an amazing experience. I really like the Self Discovery community because it's positive and lifts me up when I go there.
It's easy to connect and I find everything
I am looking for as its well organized and
easy to search.
The app is great and I pop into the community throughout the day to check in on what is happening.
On my work breaks I open it first instead of going into facebook (which is pointless and negative). There is a lot of good information that helps me understand myself, as well as gratitude which makes my life better."
